We need help here in Colorado, folks, with getting the word out about Amendment 64, inviting voters to support the campaign to regulate marijuana like alcohol and tobacco. There are so many advantages to this, and polls show that most adults in Colorado, over half anyway, support the decriminalization of marijuana in Colorado. However, no one’s sure that when those voters go to fill out their ballots, they will vote Yes! Tax it! Regulate it!
And the experts who know these kind of things and run these kinds of campaigns say the best way is to get the word out to people, educate people, point out the benefits (tax income to state, will keep away from teenagers, end black-market distribution and associated crime, permit people to grow hemp and marijuana, etc., etc.) Talking to people, one on one is the best, but that’s never enough people to pass this important piece of legislation. And of course telling lots of people, that takes money. To that end, the Coalition to End Marijuana Prohibition has set up an on-line STORE, and are offering a special package: spend $19.99, and you get a shirt, a sticker, a button.
I know it’s not your state, but if it passes, you will be able to visit Colorado and, with proper id showing you are over 21-years-of-age, you will be able to legally purchase marijuana. And further, legalization has to start somewhere, and it may as well be in 2012 in Colorado. Help us blaze the way, and maybe your state will be next!
Here, let them tell you about it:
We have made no secret of our campaign’s goal to get people talking about marijuana and the benefits of ending marijuana prohibition. Well, there is no better way to start those conversations than by wearing your support for Amendment 64 on your sleeve… or your water bottle… or your computer…
To assist you in doing that, we are offering a giftpack of one T-shirt, one sticker, and one button to anyone who donates $19.99 or more from this point forward. (Note: we must report the names and addresses of anyone who gives $20 or more.)
We are also pleased to announce the launch of our new online campaign store, where you can find everything from T-shirts, stickers, and buttons, to drinkware, tote bags, and laptop skins. It also offers bulk orders of stickers, buttons, and magnets so that you can give them out to others who want to show their support.
Our momentum is building and the word is getting out that Colorado has a really good shot at ending marijuana prohibition this year. We need to keep it going by making sure everyone knows of this amazing opportunity, and you can help by getting some YES on 64 gear and getting people talking.
Thank you for being a part of this collective effort to make history in November!
